Crypto Analyst Names Four Altcoin Picks to Boost Struggling Portfolios

Crypto strategist and influencer Tyler Swope is naming four top altcoin picks that he says can bring struggling crypto portfolios back to life.

At the top of Swope’s list is Dai (DAI) which he says is the clear leader in the stablecoin product development race.

“So which one has all the developers? Dai does, not so much the others. For example, how many different forms of Dai are there right now? There’s the scalable xDai, a collaboration between POA and Maker DAO. There’s the private ZkDai from Aztec protocol… It’s a long list of Dai forms. Jordan Lyall has them all on GitHub – 26 different forms on the mainnet, 11 in development, and two new ideas. You don’t even see 1% of this development on other stablecoins…

Like I always say, follow the devs. And because of this, you don’t see near the mainstream implementations: Centrifuge Tinlake using Dai, PoolTogether using Dai, Sablier money streams they are using Dai. You see the common theme?”

The next altcoin on Swope’s list is Uniswap (UNI).

“It’s dominating DEXs (decentralized exchange) with over 58% market share and the volume is over 408 million dollars which is unheard of for a DEX and in the past, only centralized exchanges saw that type of action. 

Uniswap has had vampire attacks, week after week, which it has brushed right off. It’s becoming so clear that Uniswap isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.”

Number three is Aragon (ANT) which Swope says has been busy building the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) infrastructure for four years.

“Aragon has over 1,600 DAOs created with over $350 million in assets stored for use within the DAO organizations. These communities include 1Hive, those behind Honeyswap, Aave (Aave), Aavegotchi (GHST), Curve (CRV), Decentraland (MANA), district0x (DNT), mStable (MUSD), PieDAO, and even Stake Capital.”

Grabbing the fourth spot is xDai which Swope says can potentially offer a...
